ok i dont really have any weird problems with my computer except for the occasional freeze while playing AA. otherwise we run great. after reading a thread about voltages i determined that my PS is not giving enough power. i have a generic (powertec) 300w featherweight. i have other priorities..

1. ddr ram
2. dvd drive
3. replace broken volcano 7 fan
4. fu*k the volcano and build a watercooling rig.

do i need to worry about the PS yet? or can i get my 512mb stick of ddr and dvd drive.

my voltages (according to mbm)...

3.3v = 3.20v
5v = 4.93v
+12 = 12.40v
-12 = 11.69v

core1 = 2.50v
core0 = 1.78v

hope i didnt leave out any thing

Those voltages do look TOO bad, i woudldnt worry about it unless you start to have stabliity problems. Random reboots and stuff. However, i would fix the power supply before going water cooled, because if you PSU isnt providing enough power then you will be held back in your overclock, making the watercooling almost useless. (except for being quiet.
